The Cost of Spray Foam
When we lose a bid, the most frightening thing to hear is that a job was awarded solely on price. Spray foam insulation is not an area where you want to cut corners. Saving a few hundred dollars today is not worth the risk of that project coming back to haunt you!
Don’t cut corners when installing spray foam!
On average spray foam insulation costs two to three times more than traditional fiberglass. Here in the Chicagoland area quality spray foam ranges from $1.50 to $7.20 per square foot including application. Prices for foam depend on many different factors including; the type of foam, the quality of the foam, the depth of the foam, the type of framing and any special labor requirements to ensure proper application.
In comparing quotes for a project, significant gaps between pricing should raise questions. We encourage all of our customers to reach out and ask us about our pricing. There are many situations where we are not the cheapest. However, our prices are consistent with market standards. Most importantly, our pricing is always quoted based on what you need to ensure the thermal envelope meets building code and the science of your structure.
If a quote is significantly lower, you should be asking yourself “what risks am I taking by accepting this price break?” and “has the thermal envelope been compromised to accommodate the reduced cost?” Low-quality spray foam applied incorrectly will eventually come back to haunt you.
What did the ghost of this completed project end up costing? Between litigation, bankruptcy, and reputation, one can assume the list is endless.
